Artist: Tom Gabel ft. Chuck Ragan
Song: “Greenback Dollar”
Tom Gabel (frontman of Against Me!) and Chuck Ragan (of solo work and Hot Water Music) join forces on this incredible acoustic version of “Greenback Dollar,” played live at a local radio station. Chuck Ragan’s new album will be out in September, and Against Me! is rolling high off their recent White Crosses/Black Crosses release.
Both Gabel and Ragan are no rookies to the acoustic scene, and both have a unique skill set when it comes to the anger, frustration, and passion that often threads through their punk roots and their ability to incorporate it into the folk genre. Plenty of others have tried to pull off similar stylistic choices, but few can compare to these two, especially when they team up.
